Born to a Jewish immigrant family in Mexico a few years before the Revolution of 1910, she matured into an independent liberal who defended Mexico, workers, and all those who were treated unfairly, whatever their origin or nationality.In this book, her daughter, Susannah Glusker, traces Brenners intellectual growth and achievements from the 1920s through the 1940s.

Drawing on Brenners unpublished journals and autobiographical novel, as well as on her published writing, Glusker describes the origin and impact of Brenners three major books, Idols Behind Altars, Your Mexican Holiday, and The Wind That Swept Mexico.Along the way, Glusker traces Brenners support of many liberal causes, including her championship of Mexico as a haven for Jewish immigrants in the early 1920s.

This intellectual biography brings to light a complex, fascinating woman who bridged many worlds--the United States and Mexico, art and politics, professional work and family life.
